Jonathan I followed your instructions but still doesnt work. Now, all this is really disappointing. Would you suggest I reinstall FreeBSD 6.3? Perhaps I reinstall it without choosing Xorg during sysinstall and then install it later through package or port? If you think this wont make a difference, then I am prepared to just leave it as it is for now I think.
